Eureka’s Parklet Program
In 2015, the City Council approved implementation of an 18-month Pilot Program to assess parklet suitability for the City of Eureka, and in June 2017 the parklet program was officially made permanent for existing and new parklets.
The goals of this program are to enliven Eureka’s streets, foster neighborhood interaction, and support local businesses. Through the creation and use of parklets, we hope to increase our ability as a City to balance the needs of people walking, riding bicycles, taking transit and travelling by car, provide spaces for people to gather and spend time enjoying the weather, and enhance the pedestrian streetscape in our commercial cores areas.
